Waterboard Warriors second in national meet

The Waterboard Warriors water ski show team from Wrightstown earned second place in the 13th annual Indmar Marine Engines Division 2 Show Ski National Championships last weekend in Tomahawk.

The Waterboard Warriors accumulated 1,357 points. The Chetek Hydroflites won the title by 60 points.

The three-day event ended Sunday.

The Waterboard Warriors garnered Division 2 national awards for best pickup boat crews and best pyramid, the latter in which they converted four pre-fabricated pyramids (2-3-3-2) into a larger set of three pyramids (2-4-2).

On the first day of the event Friday, team members Chris Dinse of Green Bay and Jordyn Jones of Suamico won the Division 2 national title in strap doubles during the individual competition.

"This team has really done a lot to bring the entire show together in the last month," Tom Allen, the Waterboard Warriors president, said in a news release. "This is a win. It goes to show how much dedication each person has to the team and the sport of show skiing."

More information about the team and a schedule of area performances are online at www.waterboardwarriors.org.

SNC to host challenge run

The second annual Don Schneider Memorial Challenge Run will be held Saturday, Sept. 21, at St. Norbert College in De Pere.

The 5K event will begin at 9 a.m. as part of the college's SNC Day activities.

The course will start and finish on campus, looping south on Lost Dauphin Road.

The event is loosely based on the "Tough Mudder" obstacle-course races designed by British Special Forces but won't be extreme.

Registration cost is $15, which includes a commemorative T-shirt. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each division.

To register, go to the website www.snc.edu/sncday. Proceeds from the event will benefit Don Schneider Memorial Scholarships at the college.

Showers and food/refreshments will be available in Schuldes Sports Center for participants after the race.
